Except for….you know….all those dead bodies.
Chicago gun violence continued to decline with the cooler weather in November, but shootings and murders are still spiking compared with last year.
Nearly 3,800 people were shot in Chicago this year through the end of November, compared with about 2,400 shooting victims in the same period last year — a 58% increase.
Meanwhile, police reported 716 murders through the end of November, a 54% increase from the 464 murders during the same time last year.
Don’t forget carjackings. Those are up a little bit, too.
That’s only a 250% increase.
